Life seems ironic that I am currently sitting in Yellowknife and posting about my spring like staycation in Ottawa. Even more ironic is we finally got beautiful temperatures 20 degrees when I left yesterday and I am back in snow. Do you know how silly one looks wearing heavy winter wear in the spring? I mean almost as silly as those wearing shorts in the snow right? Well My Floral Frock will help me forget the temperature wherever I am
Silly pose to show off how cute this little dress is that I purchased this weekend. Well staycation does not mean no shopping right? This was at Old Navy and seemed the perfect transition piece for this season and matches my Tom’s perfectly. And big blogger secret because I am in travel status and not posting a current outfit I am wearing the dress again. WOW, two wears in three days, I know unheard of but I really like it.
Saturday I was dressing for comfort and walking. Great excuse to get my Traveling Tom’s back out of the closet ( last seen in Mexico). Throwing a pair of jeans under a dress is perfect transitional layering.
So the glow is not just the sunshine, I finally went foundation shopping. Not the undergarments I mean real face cream coverage shopping. I do not wear foundation, or powder or blush but I thought maybe I should try it out. My normal makeup routine, bit of eyeshadow and liner and maybe lip colour if I remember.
I am pretty proud of my skin, no blemishes just a few freckles ( or more than a few in summer). I do have some age wrinkles but hey I call them laugh lines but overall healthy skin. I was asked what I use for foundation once and proudly stated nothing but for special occasions I thought it might be nice to up it a bit. Went to Sephora for the first time, not overly impressed by the staff I will say. Is it because I am a boomer not a 20 something that they basically ignored me? I will wonder about that for a bit. Once I did get a bit of assistance she directed me to the Urban Decay line. I was given a sample to try and I am liking it. Now to find something for the ” Neck Lines” ick.
Outfit and Backdrop
Saturday I did head home for an hour or so. Lou was by herself and I had not originally intended to stay the weekend at the hotel. I figured I would stay Thursday night and then head home for a weekend of netflix and blogging while Kent worked. After one night I realized I would rather stay with him so home for a quick undie run and some Lou snuggles. Plus a few pictures although the sun was totally in the wrong place for me.
